|Baculovirus-Insect Cell lysate that Human CLK3 transfected / overexpressed for Western blot (WB) positive control. The whole cell lysate is provided in 1X Sample Buffer (1X modified RIPA buffer+1X SDS loading buffer).|
|A DNA sequence encoding the human CLK3 isoform b (NP_003983.2) (Met 1-Arg 490) was fused with the GST tag at the N-terminus.|
|The recombinant human CLK3/GST chimera consists of 714 amino acids and predicts a molecular mass of 85 kDa. It migrates as an approxiamtely 70 kDa band in SDS-PAGE under reducing conditions.|
|Cell lysate was prepared by homogenization in ice-cold modified RIPA Lysis Buffer with cocktail of protease inhibitors (Sigma). Cell debris was removed by centrifugation. Protein concentration was determined by Bradford assay (Bio-Rad protein assay, Microplate Standard assay). The cell lysate was boiled for 5 min in 1 x SDS loading buffer (50 mM Tris-HCl pH 6.8, 12.5% glycerol, 1% sodium dodecylsulfate, 0.01% bromophenol blue) containing 5% b-mercaptoethanol, and lyophilized.|
|Modified RIPA Lysis Buffer: 50 mM Tris-HCl pH 7.4, 150 mM NaCl, 1mM EDTA, 1% Triton X-100, 0.1% SDS, 1% Sodium deoxycholate, 1mM PMSF.|
|12.5% SDS-PAGE Stained with Coomassie Blue after protein purification.|
|Samples are stable for up to twelve months from date of receipt.|
|1. Centrifuge the tube for a few seconds and ensure the pellet at the bottom of the tube. 2. Re-dissolve the pellet using 200μL pure water and boil for 2-5 min. 3. Store the lyophilized cell lysate at 4℃. After re-dissolution, recommend to aliquot it into smaller quantities and store at -80℃.|
|1 X Sample Buffer (1 X modified RIPA buffer+1 X SDS loading buffer).|
|Store at 4℃. After re-dissolution, aliquot and store at -80℃.|
|Western blot (WB): Use at an assay dependent dilution.|
Other Applications: Not tested.
Optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
Dual specificity protein kinase CLK3, also known as CDC-like kinase 3, and CLK3, is a member of CMGC Ser/Thr protein kinase family and Lammer subfamily. Mammalian CLK is the prototype for a family of dual specificity kinases (termed Lammer kinases) that have been conserved in evolution. CLK family members have shown to interact with, and phosphorylate, serine- and arginine-rich (SR) proteins of the spliceosomal complex, which is a part of the regulatory mechanism that enables the SR proteins to control RNA splicing. The three members of the CLK family of kinases (CLK1, CLK2, and CLK3) have been shown to undergo conserved alternative splicing to generate catalytically active and inactive isoforms. The human CLK2 and CLK3 are found within the nucleus and display dual-specificity kinase activity. The truncated isoforms, hCLK2(T) and hCLK3(T), colocalize with SR proteins in nuclear speckles. CLK3 may play a role in the development and progression of azoospermia.
